When to Visit

Ideally, the best time to visit Samoa is during the dry season from May to October, when you can enjoy clear sunny skies and less rainfall. This is the prime time for beach holidays and outdoor activities.

Visiting in the shoulder months of April and November can also be a good option when the weather remains relatively warm and dry, and fewer tourists mean better deals on flights and accommodation. Although Samoa experiences increased rainfall from December to March, temperatures remain warm and prices are at their lowest, appealing for budget-conscious travellers.
